Wanamingo – another well-attended RUS EIS meeting

Filed under:RUS EIS — posted by admin on June 17, 2009 @ 8:12 pm


There’s “larger than life” Joyce Osborn, United Citizens Action Network, at the Wanamingo meeting tonight, where RUS was holding an open house to gather public comments for their Environmental Impact Statement.  Oh, nevermind, it’s a MINATURE turbine…

Tonight, there were about 200 people — Stephanie Strength said that last night’s crowd in Plainview was MORE than 200!  It was a good gathering and I got to meet a lot of people I’ve been corresponding with but never met, and Joyce and Judy from U-CAN (United Citizens Action Network) were there and I overheard someone telling Joyce how much she’d appreciated her comments at the Cannon Falls PUC Public Hearing, that she really went at it and said what needed to be said!  That kind of statement makes this battle a lot easier!
